Dear FAMM supporter --
Keep those letters coming! You have done a great job flooding the U.S. Sentencing Commission with letters telling them to make the crack guideline retroactive and reduce all drug sentences by two levels. If you haven’t sent a letter, you can find a sample letter here: LETTER. If you have sent a letter, ask all your family and friends to write. The Commission needs to hear from as many people as possible by March 21 and we need all the help we can get to get the word out!
There are a lot of exciting things happening this week:
- FAMM Vice President Mary Price will testify before the U.S. Sentencing Commission on Thursday, March 17. She will tell the commissioners to make the crack guideline retroactive and lower all drug sentences. For more about the hearing logistics, visit the U.S. Sentencing Commission website.
- FAMM will tweet the Sentencing Commission hearing live! Be sure to follow us on Twitter.
- FAMM will post a summary on our website.
Please keep sending in those letters and join us by Twitter, Facebook or on our website as we tell the Commission to do the right thing and make sentences fairer for thousands of people. Thank you for standing up with us – and rest assured that FAMM will be standing up for you at the Commission hearing!

Director, Federal Legislative Affairs
